Buenos Aires, June 24. Human rights organizations, family members and survivors from the military dictatorship repudiated statements made by Cuban doctor Hilda Molina and declared her persona non grata for offending the Mothers and Grandmothers of the May Plaza.
Molina, a doctor that used to belong to the Cuban Communist Party and who confronted the government when it was discovered that she received money from people for services that are given fee in Havana, recently received authorization to leave the island and make a temporary visit to Argentina. Her son, who lives here, was also accused of embezzlements against Cuba at the time. When she arrived she said she was going to be politically discreet to avoid the host country any embarrassment. When she was bombarded with interviews from the extreme right media, she forgot her commitment.
She declared to ultra-right media Perfil (Profile) that the mothers and grandmothers of the May Plaza: “suffered the persecution of a dictatorship, however they worship others, like the one in Cuba. The one in Cuba is leftist while the one they suffered belonged to the extreme right. I knew they were not going to do anything because those who worship that dictatorship like to make demons out of those who think differently.”
“If you consider the Cuban revolution a dictatorship and liken it to the Fascist and criminal dictatorship of Jorge Videla and Emilio Massera, you offend all Argentineans that suffered terrorism”, says the official statement of the Argentinean human rights organizations.
